Unknown dates of birth (in Kamigata) and death. His first stage names were Ichikawa Tomonosuke and Ichikawa Ensh˘ I. He became a disciple of Nakamura Tomosa II in 1854 and received the name of Nakamura Momosa II. He left ďsaka for Edo at the end of the 1850s or the very beginning of the 1860s (after the death of his master the 16th day of the 3rd lunar month of 1861 ?). He took the name of Nakamura T˘z˘ in the 8th lunar month of 1864 in Edo at the Ichimuraza and his name disappeared afterwards from theater playbills. He was, just like his master, a d˘kegata and hand˘gataki but never really achieved any fame for himself.
